About Soter Vineyards
Tony Soter made his name with Cabernet Sauvignon in California at Spottswoode, as well as with his own Etude label. But to show he was serious about Oregon Pinot Noir, he relocated to the Willamette Valley. The time and energy he's devoted to the vineyard is evident in his intensely fruity, layered Pinots that do not sacrifice balance or focus for power.

($75) Good dark red. Captivating nose combines red fruits, tobacco, iron, tree bark and flowers; like a hypothetical blend of sangiovese and Bandol. Sweet and creamy but juicy, with lovely inner-mouth energy and spice character. Very tactile, elegant wine with insinuating persistence. I'm not sure I would have picked this as coming from the New World.
